DK/FeatureComedySilent films

The celebrated and vain cellist Karél impresses the royal couple with his virtuoso playing. When the princess invites Karél to go driving with her the following day, he convinces himself that she’s in love with him. He woos her ardently and sends her all the flowers he has received at the theatre. While waiting for a response, he falls asleep and dreams up all sorts of crazy scenarios for the outcome of his courting.
